EXAMPLE

7480 is included because 7480, 7481 and 7482 are all happy numbers.

MATHEMATICA

happyQ[n_] := Nest[Plus @@(IntegerDigits[ # ]^2\)&, n, 50] == 1); Transpose[Select[Partition[Select[Range[50000], happyQ], 3, 1], #[[3]] - #[[2]] == #[[2]] - #[[1]] == 1 &]][[1]]

f[n_] := Total[IntegerDigits[n]^2]; t = Select[Range[50000], NestWhile[f, #, UnsameQ, All] == 1 &]; t[[Select[Range[Length[t] - 2],  t[[#]] == t[[# + 1]] - 1 == t[[# + 2]] - 2 &]]] (* T. D. Noe, Aug 23 2011 *)
