-3, -2 and -1.

The three consecutive whole numbers you are looking for are 1, 2, and 3. The sum of the first two numbers, 1 + 2 = 3.

Since one of the numbers will be even and the other odd, the sum will always be odd.

The sum of any two consecutive whole numbers is always odd, and equal to one more than twice the first number (2x+1).

Consecutive whole numbers have no other whole numbers between them.
