In brief: Yes

You get maximum points for risk factors, start with loosing wait, quit smoking, and increase daily physical activity.

In brief: Heart attack

Yes, you are at an extremely high risk.
Even if you were not obese you would be at high risk for heart disease given your family history. Add in obesity and your risk is even higher. You should see a cardiologist and have a full work up done.
