Are YOU eating at 1800 now? How do you feel with those cals? Are you at your goal weight? Are you maintaining now? Your TDEE is higher than that once you put your info in the calculator, you are definitely above the intermediate activity level (working out and chasing 3 kids). Since you yo-yo dieted, a reset would be a great idea to fire up your metabolism and remind your body once again that maintenance is not below 2k. Yes, those number may look scary, but don't be afraid. If you haven't done so, check out our metabolism reset guide to know what to expect: http://eatmore2weighless.com/the-metabolism-reset-guide/
The idea of increasing slowly is the best. 100 cals extra per day will avoid bloating and other side effects. Your macros are great! Strength training is the best thing you can do to build back your muscle mass. The more muscle, the more calories burned daily. I'm sure by now you know that ST will not make you bulky at all. Cardio is up to up to you. Remember, cardio is for fun and weights to transform. EM2WL has a nice free starter ST workout: http://training.eatmore2weighless.com/get-your-free-workout/.

@TerezaToledo according to the weight loss calculator, my calorie consumption with a 15% deficit is 2230 cal a day with moderate workout. I have been eating on average of 1700 cal a day with binge eating intermittently. Do you recommend the metabolism reset?
