According to the National Heart Foundation of Australia, you should check your waist circumference to see if you’re carrying excess body fat around your midsection.

You can measure your waist by first measuring from the top of your hip bone to the bottom of your ribs. Breathe out as you normally would so you’re not holding your breath in, then place the tape measure between these two points. Wrap the tape measure around your waist and look at this measurement. WebMD says men should have a circumference of no more than 40 inches and women should not exceed 35 inches.
