Endomorph: it is a nice way to say overweight or obese. Risks include hypertension, diabetes, elevated cholesterol, and cardiac/stroke issues. Minimize these risks with a 5 times weekly exercise program, diet changes, and stress reduction.

Budy habitus: Genetic variation can influence your body shape and your body fat can accumulate in different areas than perhaps in other family members. What you describe is not in general connected to health issues, but increasing weight can certainly cause later blood pressure, heart and other health concerns.
