You either haven't done:

source ~/.bash_profile

Or more likely (I'm making an assumption here, as you haven't said) that
you haven't told whichever terminal emulator you use in X to spawn a login
shell.  xterms, rxvts support the '-ls' switch for that.  This will force
the login shell to read your ~/.bash_profile as per Bash Invokation.
