Reszed disk does not reflect the proper size from vSphere client

I used a procedure to shrink the .VMDK file which was 200GB as we did not need the space allocated to it and there was plenty of free space. I used one of the recommended methods to shrink the volume from within windows disk management creating un-allocated space and then subsequently using the vi interface through an SSH session to reduce the size of the disk. It worked perfectly fine and I can see the disk size reduced on Disk Management from within the windows to 100GB. But when I logon to vSphere client to check the size of the .VMDK file it is unchanged and still stating the size as 200GB. How can i ensure it reflects the changed size?
