Worried before submitting...

 :) We have a strong SEO presence now with a 7 year old site...
Without ever submitting a sitemap using Google Webmaster tools directly, we have been doing great all these years with just search bots crawling our links as is.

I have installed the full version of sitemap generator and things look great.

Question: I've heard by finally making the submission our current page rank and urls may be lost after a submission?
                 Can someone attest that this wont hurt but submitting the sitemap?

submitting sitemap will not hurt the indexing of existing pages in search engines, it will just help SEs to find other pages on your site.
