100 lb. Club - my funny(ish) "poem" about pounds,kilos,stone

So here's the deal. I quite like writing silly/funny(ish) "poems" about stuff and I thought since I am on a loss-mission I might write about it.
I live in a country where we measure by kilos, have lived in the UK -stone and everybody here is using pounds so I came up with an ode to the 3 of them.
Forgive any mistakes as I am not a native speaker. I hope I can make you smile :) .

When I think about my weight I say I am 17 stones
Just some stones and a few bones
That doesnít sound an awful lot
Hey, Iím skinnier than I thought

But itís kilos when I count to lose
43, now thatís a number I can use
95, of you I dare not speak
Not even at the scale to peek

Yet when I finish I will count in pounds
95 - I like the way it sounds
Just think how amazing I can be
Wearing my bikini by the sea!

6 stone itís time to toss
95 pounds - oh what a loss
43 kilos no longer here
Soon itíll be time to cheer!

Some words of wisdom must be said
Always, always plan ahead
Love thyself at any weight
Every day a clean slate
Exercise, be fit and strong
Iím warning you - I intend to wear a thong!
