    I know it is not common and perhaps it's wrong to put "including me" at the beginning of the sentence. But what if we want to stress that fact and put it at the beginning?! Is it any way to say that without using "if"?

    Including me, there are five people in my family.

    That's fine.

    ps - Sorry about the typo in my last post 'The are...'. I have now corrected it.

    "How many people are there in your family, including you?"
    "Including me, there are four."

    PS: Sorry about doubling the answer.
