I am trying to update my $Path variable.  However, I am getting the message the executable needs to be in the PATH.

I used this command to update the path
echo 'export PATH=/Users/rjw/Documents/Python' >>~/.bash_profile

But when you look at echo $PATH you get the following without my path above.

export PATH=${PATH}:~/android-sdk-mac/tools
export PS1="rjw "
export PATH="/usr/local/mysql/bin:$PATH"
alias ll='ls -lahG'
export PATH=/usr/local/mysql/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/Users/rjw/android-sdk-mac/tools:/usr/local/mysql/bin

export PATH=/usr/local/mysql/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/Users/rjw/android-sdk-mac/tools:/usr/local/mysql/bin:/usr/local/mysql/bin

export PATH=/usr/local/mysql/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/Users/rjw/android-sdk-mac/tools:/usr/local/mysql/bin:/usr/local/mysql/bin

export PATH

I uninstalled macports if that is the problem and went to homebrew instead.
