For last year's words belong to last year's language,
And next year's words await another voice.
TS Eliot
Old Year and New Year by Christina Rossetti

New Year met me somewhat sad:
Old Year left me tired,
Stripped of favourite things I had
Baulked of much desired:
Yet further on my road to-day
God willing, further on my way.
Happy New Year

I first saw this word in a News Round Up article: http://www.english-magazine.org/english-reading/english-news-round-up/4011-news-round-u-185

It is an adjective used to describe anything pertaining to or tending to cause obesity.

Seemingly it first appeared in 1996.
