Can it also mean "I am very big(fat)"?

In 99% it will be used to describe the height of a person. In 1% it describes both height and the wide of a person. You might encounter that someone says Er ist eine große Person and he is above average height and also fat.

No, if you want to say that politely, you should use "kräftig".
