    No, the only things that you will lose are specific modifications made to the current theme. These modifications will remain with the theme template files, but they will not transfer over to the new theme.

    You also might seem to lose your widgets if the new theme supports a different set of widget sidebars. But your old widgets will get saved into the Inactive Widgets box. For best control, you can empty that box out before changing themes, and after the changes, you will have the last set there. Some themes seem to be compatible with which widgets they show.
